2011 Emmy Awards: Best of the Best Dressed

 Ahh award season. The most wonderful time of the year, in my opinion. While I am more partial to the Golden Globes and the Oscars, the Emmys are usually a great award show, slightly more lighthearted than the aforementioned ceremonies. This year was actually a pretty stellar year for fashion on the Emmy red carpet (except for that horrific belly dancer outfit that Gwyneth Paltrow showed up in) and these lovely ladies are the best of the best. Christina Hendricks in Johanna Johnson, Sofia Vergara in Vera Wang, and Kate Winslet in Elie Saab all did exactly what you are supposed to do on the red carpet: look elegant, but not over done, showcase your best features, and do it all with a great air of confidence. 

To me, there is a clear winner in this whole shebang, because Miss Kate looks so absolutely stunning. I mean, she looks fierce, quote the illustrious Christian Siriano. In fact, if I were her, I would never not wear this dress. Click on the picture to see a close up of the AMAZING diamond drop earrings she is sporting. A winning red carpet look for a fabulous Emmy winner!

So this movie has been making headlines recently, following the Cannes Festival a few months back (mostly because of director Lars von Trier's comments about the Nazis), but I just saw the trailer today and I've watched it at least 5 times. I don't know what it is but it's almost addictingly beautiful plus it includes a gorgeous Wagner score (hence von Trier's comments about the Nazis) and I am a sucker for an art film. I read some early reviews of it and one of the comments on the trailer video said, "It was the most horrifying movie I have ever seen. I couldn't speak for an hour after watching it."
Still unsure if I'm going to go see it, to be frank. I said I was going to see Tree of Life this summer but that didn't really pan out because of all of the terrible reviews/ no one wanted to see it with me. Perhaps I can work up the courage for this one but it honestly looks brutal.
